Mount Happiness

Mount Happiness~Trail 3.bmpMount Happiness or Garani (also called Meditation Point) can be easily reached from the Pir Sohawa road. You can start from the first tea stall (called Chawki) after Daman-e-Koh and walk along the ridge to Mount Happiness (Garani) where you will see unfinished picnic spot. There is a well-maintained trail from the Khayaban-e-Iqbal (“Margalla Road”) in F-6/3 to the hill top with signs erected by CDA (CDA trail 3).

There is a good parking place just off the Margalla Road. Going down from the top can take an hour, but going uphill starting from F-6/3 takes almost 2 hours. Many shortcuts and alternative tracks are present but eventually you will get to the top.

The tech savvy can use GPS devices to map the trail, pretty much as shown, and can integrate with Google earth to get a 3- Dimensional view. Google earth supports Garmin and Mandelin devices.
